BEVERLY, Mass. USA – January 3, 2022 – LexaGene Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: LXXGF; TSX-V: LXG), a molecular diagnostics company that has commercialized an instrument for automated multiplex PCR testing, is pleased to announce three additional purchase orders for MiQLab™ Systems from veterinary clinics in Michigan, Minnesota, and New York.
Julie Griggs, LexaGene’s Global Director of Sales, stated, “My team is diligently engaged with numerous veterinary practices, both private and corporate. Many of the veterinarians we have spoken to share our excitement over the value of in-clinic PCR testing and the capabilities that the MiQLab System can provide to their practices. It is gratifying to welcome 2022 with a strong start and continue our momentum as we work on closing additional sales.”
Dr. Jack Regan, LexaGene’s Founder and CEO said, “I’m pleased that we are making headway in the veterinary diagnostics marketplace. By acquiring MiQLab Systems, veterinary practices are setting themselves apart from their competition, as this technology allows them to elevate the standard of care they provide to companion animals. We look forward to educating veterinary practices in the coming year, regarding the importance of in-clinic PCR testing, and aim to revolutionize veterinary diagnostics through the sale of MiQLab Systems. No longer should veterinary practices empirically diagnose our companion animals or send samples off to labs only to wait days or weeks for results when they can have a treatment plan in a fraction of the time.”
LexaGene is participating in the upcoming Veterinary Meeting and Expo (VMX) in Orlando, Florida, where more than 6,500 veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and practice managers will gather mid-January. On Sunday, January 16th, Dr. Jack Regan will be a presenter at the conference. Participants can attend his presentation entitled, “In-Clinic PCR Testing for Pathogen and Resistance Detection,” at 9:00 a.m. in the VMX Learning Theater.
